The internet was heartbroken to hear about the breakup between Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn. And now sources are coming out on what lead to this split.
Joe Alwyn and Swift first met back at the 2016 Met Gala and started dating a few months later. The relationship went public in 2017, and this weekend Entertainment Tonight broke the news that the couple officially split.
The Marriage Theory
And shortly after this breakup, many alluded to a theory that the two were actually married.
Swift wore what looked like an engagement ring in her 2020 Netflix documentary for “Miss Americana”. While sitting down in the film, many online pointed out the big rock that seemed to appear on her left finger.
This was never proven to be true, but some people really thought the two secretly got engaged since they never shared much of their relationship with the public.
Is Taylor Swift Seeing Someone New?
Swift’s reps came out saying that this was “fully not true” though some fans believe otherwise. Another theory also went around after the breakup that Swift was already seeing someone new.
However, this rumor is also being officially shut down.
Initially, fans took to popular gossip site Deuxmoi claiming that the “Lavender Haze” singer was seeing someone older. However, a source told Page Six that Swift is not involved with anyone else after the Alwyn breakup.
The source went on to say that swift is “100% single”
According to the reports, Swift and Alywn broke up a few weeks ago and allegedly this split “wasn’t dramatic.” Outlets reported that “the relationship just ran its course” with many saddened to hear the news. Some believe Swift hinted she replaced her famed love ode to Alwyn “Invisible String” with the song “The 1” during her March 31st show in Arlington, Texas.
The song’s lyrics states “And if my wishes came true / It would’ve been you / In my defense, I have none / For never leaving well enough alone / But it would’ve been fun / If you would’ve been the one.”
And now looking past this breakup, some outlets are claiming what led to Swift and Alwyn’s split. According to People Magazine, a close source stated the two ultimately “weren’t the right fit for one another.”
Joe Alwyn Struggled With Taylor Swift’s Fame
The source went on to say that Alwyn and Swift grew their relationship when the two were locked down together, but didn’t get to explore their relationship outside of “that bubble.”
The source also stated: “Joe has struggled with Taylor’s level of fame and the attention from the public. The differences in their personalities have also become harder to ignore after years together. They’ve grown apart.”
The two allegedly spoke about marriage within the last few months of their relationship, but the source mentioned that “Taylor didn’t see them working out in the long run.”
Swift claims that she does not have anything bad to say about Joe and in the end Swift is focused on her tour at the moment. Despite this breakup, there is a lot of respect between the two of them.
